Preview: Burnout Paradise

50°
356w ago - Paradise is a very different Burnout game. The biggest change is that it's jumping on the free-roaming city bandwagon that every current-gen racing game seems to parade with such enthusiasm these days.

Unlike your Test Drives and Midnight Clubs though, the metropolis in Burnout Paradise has truly been designed for a wealth of things to do inside your motor.

Paradise Playground
On any road in Paradise you can activate 'Road Rules' with just a tap of the d-pad. Once activated, the best time for racing the length of that street pops up on-screen and if you beat it you 'own' that route. Take that online and you can see a huge friends list competition take shape.

Similarly, handbreak onto a curb and you'll activate the parallel parking challenge, another completely seamless batch of fun that has nothing to do with the game's main races and events, but adds tons of content to Burnout's massive metropolis.

While Paradise City is clearly massive, it's obvious that most of Criterion's effort has gone into maintaining this sort of immediate, accessible arcade action that Burnout is known for - and you're never far from something to do.

A crazy shortcut that has you smashing through scenery and onto a packed highway is always round the corner, and learning and exploring...

Street Fighter IV Unveiled

50°
356w ago - Numbers are supposed to be impressive, right? Well, it's been 10 years, two hardware generations, and about seventeen thousand rumors since the last pure number Street Fighter came around. And today we have the first ever official details on Street Fighter IV.

We don't blame you if your eyes have already skipped down to the screenshot lower on the page (yes, that's from the game engine). Take your time. But we've got some information as well, so the rest of this is probably worth reading when you get a chance.

Though the screenshot doesn't answer this question outright, we can confirm that the game's graphics are polygonal but the gameplay is strictly 2D. There will be new moves, locations, and gameplay features, while the standard six button control scheme remains. Ryu and Ken return along with Chun-Li and Dhalsim, but beyond that the character roster is a mystery. And then there's the issue of what platform(s) the game will end up on, which at this point Capcom is keeping close to its chest (if you search 1UP's database, you'll find listings for arcade, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, but those are just guesses based on the graphical quality).

For the full reveal of the game -- including hands-on impressions, a rundown of the new gameplay system, and loads of details on new features --...
